International Laws

Are you ambitious, analytical and eager to learn? Would you like to pursue a legal career at an international organisation? And are you at the top of your class in law, but do you also have a talent for languages? Then you should consider getting a master’s in International Laws. You’ll combine courses on international, European and comparative law with training in French and an additional foreign language other than English. You’ll also broaden your knowledge of different legal systems by spending at least one semester at one of our partner universities abroad. The programme allows you to compile a tailor-made curriculum from courses offered by the European Law School and the Globalisation and Law programme. As a graduate, you will be equipped with a thorough understanding of international, European and/or national law. You’ll also have a fluency in at least one foreign language. This unique skillset will allow you to thrive in whatever area of international law you choose to specialise in.  

  • You can explore so many different fields of law and you have the freedom of creating your own schedule
